The Burlington School District is going back to the drawing board when it comes to reshaping school boundaries.
Superintendent Jane Evans says the district’s elementary enrollment is out of balance. She says, for example, North Hill has too many students while Blackhawk is running well below capacity.
The district estimates that 14% of its elementary school students do not attend their neighborhood school. In response, it identified a neighborhood where students could change schools to help balance out the enrollment figures.
Superintendent John Henriksen says the Central Lee School District’s budget for the 2012/2013 school year is quite comparable to the district’s current budget.
The school board certified the roughly $14-million dollar spending plan Monday night.
Henriksen says the spending plan is just a couple hundred thousand dollars larger than the current budget. He says the budget’s general fund sits at around $10-million, though he believes the final expenditures will come in at around $9-million.
